QuackFuzed.com is the personal ColdFusion coding blog of Matt Quackenbush. It exists primarily as a place for the author to learn, and hopefully to assist others in learning and/or avoiding some of the same pitfalls and mistakes. (Quack certainly makes enough mistakes daily to make up for the entire ColdFusion community.)

Disabling the God-Awful "Emergency Alerts" on a Samsung Galaxy S2

Posted on December 19, 2012 at 5:53 PM in General, Rants

I've had my Galaxy S2 for well over a year now, and until yesterday I had never even heard of an "emergency alert" on a phone. I was focused on something when suddenly the silence was pierced by my phone screaming at me and a message popping up about an AMBER Alert.

Posted on June 16, 2012 at 10:31 PM in General, jQuery

So today I was writing up a simple little form hint with a jQuery UI dialog popup with more details on the hint. The code was actually quite simple:

XStandard + jQuery

Posted on March 29, 2011 at 2:37 PM in General, jQuery

We have used XStandard for many years now, and always used a JavaScript-free setup. When Firefox 4 came out, everything stopped working; the editor content was no longer being posted back to the server.

Firebug: "missing } after property list"

Posted on March 3, 2011 at 6:46 PM in General, jQuery

So I was doing some "quickie" JavaScript today, using jQuery, of course. I scribbled out some code. Then I decided to change the way I was going to handle it, so I commented out little bits and changed the code. I then decided to go back to my original idea, and uncommented everything that I had previously commented out. Or so I thought.

I am Attending OpenCF Summit

Posted on February 9, 2011 at 10:18 PM in General, ColdFusion

Living here in West Texas is kind of remarkable in a lot of ways. The savage beauty of the desert plains is remarkable. But nothing is more remarkable than the fact that out here you are 6 hours from anywhere, yet 3 hours from absolutely nowhere.

Albuquerque - 6 hours
El Paso - 6 hours
San Antonio - 6 hours
Austin - 6 hours
Dallas/Ft. Worth - 6 hours
Oklahoma City - 6 hours

But drive 3 hours in any direction, and you're still in the middle of absolutely nowhere.

Thankfully I just found this post that gave me the secret ingredient that I was missing. Since it was such a huge help for me, I decided I would pass it along.

cfUniForm - Right-Aligned Labels and No Asterisk

Posted on February 17, 2010 at 9:16 PM in General, Uni-Form Tag Library

I sometimes get asked questions like "hey, man, how can I right-align labels with cfUniForm?" or "how can I change colors?", etc. The answer is: override the CSS! That's the entire purpose of Cascading Style Sheets. Here's a quick example of how to override a couple of default behaviors with the Uni-Form specification (which is what cfUniForm is a wrapper for).

Google Assists Me In Eradicating Internet Explorer

Posted on February 2, 2010 at 6:25 PM in General, Rants

When I am elected President, the very first order of business on the agenda, to be established by Executive Order within 30 minutes of taking office, is to make ownership and/or use of Internet Explorer a crime, carrying a mandatory death sentence on the first offense. IE is one of the (if not *the*) biggest steaming piles of crap to ever make it to mass production. IE is, by my estimation, the single-most cause of web developer headaches on the planet.
